    He very well may have been. But from everything we've seen and heard about Brooks, an event like this probably wouldn't interest him. He's probably in the middle of a 6-8 week break where he's rarely thinking about golf.

    Bill Haas playing in the pro-am but not invited to the event itself? Seems very odd...is that normal? Why's he even there if he wasn't invited to play?

    That would have been pretty cool IMO if Tiger would have invited worth # 1199 this year haha.

    Apparently it's Welshman James Frazer...

    SUPER surprising that Mr. Frazer did not receive the invitation...

    I doubt it will happen given his...ahem...less than stellar performance last week but I hope Tiger wins.



    At the Tour Champs the "Young Guns" who are supposed to be unbeatable were given a proper whatfor by a 42 year old man a year removed from back fusion. I'm sick of their musical-chair mediocrity. Let 'em see what a real champion is made of.

    Watson and Reed because nobody wanted to play with either. Reed still can't believe he wasn't Jordan's partner for the honeymoon.
